I have a theory that the refs have a biased against the Lakers. Not a league agenda or unspoken rule just natural human bias.

In many games I have felt the refs were bad for both sides. But it’s calls like technicals that are fairly objective.

Yesterday Draymond Green made a gesture in the refs face. DeMarcus Cousins pushes Rondo. Draymond flagrant fouled Mo then pushed him(Tech) and Draymond held in the rim after a dunk and his body was parallel to the ground.
All no calls. All momentum changing plays if called.

My theory is based on general hate and contempt from Lakers from many basketball people that aren’t Lakers fans. Our success has made us targets. You see it in the media. You see it on social media. The Gms don’t want to make us better.

I think it’s more of an aftermath from 2002.

Bro, that's nearly 20 years ago, the only people living in those glory days are the people on this message board.  Most of the players in the league were in elementary school and their have been entire regime changes in administration of the NBA as well as the refs.

Blaming officiating is the first resort of the second rate.

Maybe we should ask AI or Duncan.  


There no pure haters or pure fans.  It's just the ignorant and the observant.  The pure haters and pure fans are the ignorant, while the rest are the less observant or the more observant.
